Municipal law is much more than advising zoning boards, representing municipalities, industrial development authorities and advocating for municipal authorities (sewer, water and storm-water). It’s about working with local governments to create the best communities for their citizenry.
Local governments in eastern Pennsylvania have looked to our firm for over 40 years to help them stay on top of the latest statutes and pending legislation. Led by Joseph J. McGrory, Jr., the former Chair of the Pennsylvania Bar Association Municipal Law Section, our attorneys feel extremely privileged to represent municipalities, zoning hearing boards, municipal authorities (sewer, water, and storm-water), and industrial development authorities.
Our attorneys have a statewide reputation for our expertise in municipal law and related areas of law, such as land use, labor, environmental, financing, litigation, sewer authority and industrial development authority rules and regulations. We teach municipal law to other attorneys around the state and are also asked to provide advisory opinions to legislators who want to change the law. We lecture to municipal officers, elected officials, and staff employees concerning the very specific laws that govern how they conduct themselves. In addition, we are very proactive in promoting legislation that will help our municipal clients.
In the last 40+ years, we have participated in over 2,000 municipal or zoning hearings. To us, municipal representation is an honor and an opportunity for us to help make our representative democracy work in the very best of ways. We look forward to the opportunity to help your community.
